Rolls-Royce. Hand built. Unique. Expensive. It is an example of the finest craftsmanship combined with mind-blowing engineering. The British car manufacturer is known for including distinctive features in their cars. One such feature is the “Spirit of Ecstasy“. And there is the “floating” wheel cap.
Every car has a wheel cap with its own logo on it. Rolls-Royce has one too. In a normal car, the wheel cap spins along with the wheel. In a RR, it just stays at rest (not completely though, it oscillates slightly which makes it appear to float ). The center cap is hooked on to a specially designed mechanism which prevents it from spinning along with the wheel.
Watch the “floating” center cap in action in the video.
